Moving Forward

Phipps Conservatory May Market

I'm happily recovering from the past two weekends. 
This last show was amazing and it was by far our most profitable.  Thank god Mark was able to join on Saturday to help out.  Set up for this show was on Thursday and Friday it was open from 9am - 7pm!  So, on Saturday I hit a wall around 2pm and just had to sit in the car for an hour.  Its all worth it though...
  • During the show before this one (Vicar Antiques and Garden) I met a woman that I might share a retail space with... Amazing.  Our business ideas put together in a cool space and in a good location will be perfect.  We are going to met up this week to discuss this possibility.  (which reminds me... i should call her)
  • At this show I met a man who works at a local aquarium that offered all the seashells they have for my products (they have been throwing them away).  This is going to be a great source... We were running out of shells and were about to have to go to the ocean for more :)
  • We are also starting to work with some amazing vendors.

My Salvation - Quote from Dana... "I am in awe of the beauty of mother nature and fascinated with discarded treasures and vintage finds. I combine taxidermy, unusual, salvaged and sometimes mis-matched items to create modern tribal, southwestern , religious inspired, and ooak looks. I am very spiritual and enjoy reading about fairies, lore, myths, gods, goddesses and the occult. I find inspiration everywhere."
